These tasty crispy chicken strips will blow your mind. They are so versatile. Great with some vegetables or salad for dinner, popped in a wrap for lunch, a delicious finger food option with a dipping sauce or you can cut chicken smaller and make some fancy nuggets for the kids. This recipe is extremely simple to make and a great alternative to store bought crumbed chicken, which can be full of preservatives and processed ingredients. Gluten free, dairy free, paleo friendly and ready in 25min, what a winner!
